Fellow Velo Bikes and Equipment
All of our Fully Guided and Self-guided tours are priced with inclusive bike hire. We have a small fleet of bikes specially selected to match our cycle tours. Our core bikes have been supplied by Thorntons our local independent bike shop, where we have been customers for over 25 years.
Thorntons Cycle Centre is based in Rugby, Warwickshire.
They are mainly all terrain/hybrid bikes with;
• at least 21 gears,
• disc brakes front and rear,
• a comfortable gel saddle,
• a bell and a water bottle,
• a lock,
• a fitted handlebar bag,
• a fitted rear rack & pannier and,
• basic lights.
Each cycle tourist, couple or small group is also provided;
• a pump,
• a spare inner tube,
• a puncture repair kit and,
• a tool kit
We can supply alternative types of bikes (road, tandem, e-bikes etc); if these are outside of our own fleet, we hire directly from a specially selected local provider. If you want bikes that are not in our own fleet then, there would be an additional cost (and usually a refundable deposit to be paid to the hire provider) but, we would also make a reduction on the quoted tour price which will off-set some of that additional cost.
